Sleeping Beauty the Ballet

Gunter Theatre

In a surprising twist on the classic Disney version of Sleeping Beauty, Justo spins a tale about a princess named Aurora who is cursed by the Fairy of Wisdom, Carabosse. On Aurora’s 16th birthday she will prick her finger on the thorn of a black rose and fall into a deep sleep. Only true love’s kiss can wake her. One hundred years later, the Lilac Fairy tempts prince Désiré with a photo of Aurora and her dancing woodland nymphs. The Lilac Fairy leads Désiré to Aurora where he frees her from her slumber and they fall madly in love.

Featuring a $10 Educational Show on Friday September 27 at 9:45 am
